DAC to the Future

IoT, Debug, and Verification at DAC 2016

It’s that time again! This week’s Fish Fry is coming to y’all from the great state of Texas and the heart of the electronic design ecosystem: the Design Automation Conference in Austin. We’re laying out a virtual chuckwagon of DAC bounty. For our first course, we’ll fry up some IP with David Rose of UltraSoC. Next, dig in to delicious debug automation with Daniel Hansson of Verifyter. And finally, you can feast on aromatic ASIC/FPGA verification with Louie DeLuna and Krzysztof Szczur of Aldec. You’ll also want to stick around for our take on the entertaining bits and bobs at this year’s conference and a special News You May Have Missed.

Triple Punch Extends The Life Of Your Smart Factory Indoor BLE Beacon

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

One emerging element of smart factories is asset management, namely the tracking of man and machine. Tracking is deployed to achieve two purposes—as a digital twin emulation mechanism to assess inefficiencies on the factory floor and as a predictive maintenance mechanism to determine impending failures. In this design solution, we review the challenges of powering a BLE beacon with a disposable battery and introduce a voltage regulator boost converter that, thanks to a triple punch of high efficiency, low shutdown current, and low quiescent current, sustains its operation for two years on a single disposable AA battery.
